Abstract : A test program was performed to evaluate the performance of individual oil-water separation devices and a series combination of those devices. Twenty-seven test runs were made to evaluate four oil-water separating devices and a combined unit consisting of three of the devices in series. The Heil parallel plate gravity separator was tested in a series of five runs using a seawater feed containing varying amounts of a mixed oil feed consisting of varying ratios of Navy Special Fuel Oil (NSFO) and Navy Slops. The Fram Coalescing Filter separator was tested in a series of seven runs using a seawater feed containing varying amounts of NSFO. The SRS separator was tested in a series of four runs using a seawater feed containing varying amounts of NSFO. A Carbon Column was tested in a series of seven runs using a seawater-oil emulsion containing varying amounts of NSFO and one of three surfactants. Four test runs were made on a combined unit consisting of the Heil separator, the SRS separator, and the Carbon Column in series. Feed was seawater, at 20 gpm, containing varying amounts of a mixed feed consisting of NSFO, slops, and surfactant. Performance in terms of oil and surfactant removal was satisfactory. (Author)
